MHB carried out the design of a series of temporary works to facilitate the removal and replacement of the existing bridge (UB 280/129) over Baberton Road in Edinburgh.
The temporary works included the analysis of the abutments when the existing deck had been removed, abutment saw cuts, abutment edge protection, crane outrigger foundation design, S&T cable support system and precast concrete unit lifting anchor checks.
We also carried out the design of temporary steel frames to ensure the stability of the proposed concrete cill units during transport on the Self Propelled Modular Transporter (SPMT) and a check of the stability of the existing deck when it has been removed on the SPMT. The job was successfully completed in June 2018.
